Committee needs to approve new drafts after adding conformance  
clauses before public review on these.

3.3.2 Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) V2.0 Technical Overview
Waiver on conformance as the doc is informational and not normative?

Brian communicated with TC Admin.
Committee Draft is currently highest status that can be obtained.
No conformance clause necessary. Can choose to perform public review  
or not, but not same cycle as normative specification. OASIS is  
considering alternative approaches but this is not available yet.

Hal - we have pending edits. Should we update and then do public  
review or public review first?

Conor - public review would be good, but first do update
Others agree.
Conor - want implementers to review even if not direct target, also  
gives publicity.

General agreement to do update and then public review.

Eve asks whether any SSTC members would like to compare this SSTC  
technical overview with recent WS-Federation white paper.

4 Other business

Eve notes Concordia and digital id world workshop - asks about  
attendance, that attendees contact Eve. Conor plans to attend.

Hal notes XML Security Workshop

"Position papers are due 14 August for the Workshop on Next Steps for  
XML Signature
and XML Encryption to be held 25-26 September in Mountain View,  
California, USA,
hosted by VeriSign. Attendees will discuss next steps for the XML  
Signature and XML
Encryption specifications and share their experiences implementing  
and developing
these standards. Topics may include interoperability and robustness,  
legal requirements for digital signature formats, and the impact of  
the evolving XML
environment. The Workshop is expected to give its recommendations to  
the XML Security
Specifications Maintenance Working Group. The Workshop is free free  
and open to all,
however, submission of position papers is required of all participants."
